HYDRAULIC HOSE PROTECTIVE SLEEVING HIGH PRESSURE TEST

Military Parachute Webbing

DEMONSTRATED PROTECTION OFFERED BY WEBBING PRODUCTS PROTECTIVE SLEEVING

Webbing Products have specifically developed the protective sleeving range to be used in various industrial hydraulic hose applications to ensure protection in the mining industry.

Our protective sleeving is designed to disperse high-pressure pin hole bursts or failures experienced by hydraulic hoses as well as to limit damage from such failures. The sleeving is designed to allow dispersed fluid to weep through the sleeving and the channel end clamps to prevent dangerous build-up of pressure and to visibly warn operators of a malfunction.

Webbing Products utilise two high-pressure tests, burst and pinhole, to support the quality of their hydraulic hose protective sleeving.

Webbing Products’ protective sleeving has been put to the test in a simulated high-pressure hydraulic hose failure, demonstrating the protection offered against damage from a burst or pinhole. Similarly, various competitor sleeving has also been tested with the Webbing Products’ protective sleeving far outperforming the competitor products.

Webbing Products’ protective sleeving has been subjected to pressures of 400 bar (5 800 Psi) and 700 bar (10 150 Psi) from a 1mm jet of fluid while safely diffusing the fluid energy. It is important to note that the use of the correct sleeving size is critical to ensuring the correct fluid dispersal.

PROTECTIVE SLEEVING – FEATURES

Protective Sleeving

Our Powerite® Protective Sleeving undergoes vigorous testing to ensure it meets the highest exacting specifications for industrial applications and includes the following features and benefits:

PIN HOLE AND BURST RESISTANCE

The Powerite® protective sleeving is designed to disperse high pressure pin hole bursts or failure experienced by hydraulic hoses as well as to limit damage from such failures. The sleeving is designed to allow dispersed fluid to weep through the sleeving and the channel end clamps to prevent dangerous build-up of pressure and to visibly warn operators of a malfunction.

Powerite® protective sleeving has been subjected to pressures of 400 bar (5 800 Psi) from a 1mm jet of fluid while safely diffusing the fluid energy.It is important to note that the use of the correct sleeving size is critical to ensuring the correct fluid dispersal.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

The combination of materials utilised, product design and tight weave provide the Powerite® protective sleeving with excellent abrasion resistance perfectly suited to protect hosing applications in harsh environments, while still allowing for ease of use given the flexible nature of the textile.

The Powerite® protective sleeving provides superior results and is tested to and conforms to the requirements of ISO 6945. When tested, the sleeving endured in excess of 150 000 cycles without perforation.

The Powerite® protective sleeving also experienced no loss of material when measured in terms of ISO 6805. ISO 6805 requires the sleeving to have achieved no loss of material greater than 1 gram when subjected to an applied load on the blade for 2 000 cycles.

When tested against the seat belt abrasion standard SAE J386, the Powerite® protective sleeving conformed to the test requirements after exceeding 75 000 cycles and maintains its excellent flame retardant and anti-static properties.

Protective Sleeving

FLAME RETARDANCY

The Powerite® protective sleeving exceeds the performance levels required in terms of ISO 6805 when tested to ISO 8030 and self-extinguishes in less than 30 seconds.

It also meets the requirements of MDG41 for use in underground coal mines.

Powerite® protective sleeving has received Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) approval for flame resistance. Approval numbers IC-319/1 and IC-319/2.

ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY

When tested in accordance with ISO 8031, the Powerite® protective sleeving achieves excellent results, well below one mega ohm per meter and as such provides an outstanding rationale for use within many applications, and specifically, within the underground coal mining industry.

Powerite® protective sleeving easily complies with both the requirements of ISO 6805 and MDG41, being less than two mega ohm and one mega ohm per meter respectively.

FEATURE PACKED MILITARY SPEC WEBBING

Military Parachute Webbing

Our Military Spec Webbing is packed with features making it one of our most sought after webbing products for a wide range of applications. Features include:

LOW ELONGATION AND SHRINKAGE

Low elongation, obtained through specialised finishing processes, reduces the inherent elongation properties of the yarn. This ensures end-use applications are maintained within specification resulting in increased safety of both personnel and equipment.

SUPERIOR STRENGTH FACTORS

The military webbings are manufactured from high specification yarns which ensure reliability and conformity in terms of customer applications and international specifications. Differentiating break strengths are available to meet various application demands.

Military Tent Webbing

HIGH ABRASION RESISTANCE

The natural abrasion resistance of the yarns utilised in the manufacture process, together with compact weave patterns, ensures the high abrasion resistance of military webbings. This allows for a long lasting life span for the end application while ensuring user safety is not compromised.

UV RESISTANCE

Military webbings are resistant to ultra violet light, providing an excellent material choice for outdoor applications requiring long lasting strength and longevity as well as maintaining colour fastness properties.

LOW WATER ABSORPTION & CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

Military webbings are water resistant as well as resistant to mould, rotting and certain chemical contaminants. Specialised finishes are also available to enhance the inherent properties of the webbing or to add custom characteristics. These include, amongst others, flame retardency, anti-static and Teflon coatings.

Military Backpack Webbing

EASE OF USE

Given the use of military webbings in outdoor applications, the webbing has been designed to provide ease of use to the end-user, in particular, to allow for a quick-drying and breathable material.

SPECIFICATIONS
